So I rolled a pretty good joint by myself and it looked like all the other joints i smoked(my friends rolled the joints before) so I used some rolling paper called Maiz or something I dont know if thats the brand or not but w/e.
So I try lighting it up and it started catching on fire and i never was able to get a run going. after a while i think I wasted like half of the joint and just smoked the rest out of an apple. So Does anybody know why my joint kept catching on fire? Was it the paper or something and I also dont know how to light a joint so is there a proper way to light one?

Yeah man if u take a long drag they can light on fire, u just blow flame out and puff on ur jay like a ciggi except hold smoke in more..

Roll joint tighter (use a flat surface such as a desk)
light up and slowly draw in on Joint untill its lite like a cigi
inhale not tooo long but take nice drags and hold in for 5 secs or so then exhale
if it catches alight, blow flame out and keep smoking
enjoy

Like everyone else said if it burned really really fast and after about a second half the joint was gone, then it was rolled too loose just keep practicing you will get better. I remember when that happened to me, once you roll a nice tight joint you will love who it burns and smokes. Imo a good joint about 1 gram or so will burn for 5-10 minutes, that's how mine are anyway. And if you still can't roll after practicing find something like a normal black mechanical pencil the cheap ones, and take off the little clip thing for your shirt and roll your paper around that pencil really tight and seal it up. I forgot to mention take off the end piece that holds the eraser, then after you roll the empty joint just sprinkle in your ground up weed and pack it into the joint nice and tight with the end opposite the writing side of the pencil, if you did it right it will be tight around the pencil when you are packing it, and it will come out looking like a cigarette. I've rolled like this many times because it always ends up being 1 gram even and they are perfectly rolled. I only do this when I'm at my crib though, it's only convenient at home, but imo it's worth it.

seems like the joint wasnt rolled to well. also, don't light it directly or it will catch on fire, keep it at the edge of the j not right on it.

you probably didnt pack it tight enough, or rolled it too loose (if that makes sense)

It sounds like a loose joint. Maybe roll another one and post some pictures to give us a better idea of what it looks like.

a real easy way to get it packed is to take a q-tip or somethin and pack the non-mouth end, insta-good joint

You could try lighting the j before you inhale. Joint rolling and smoking are both an art, it all comes with time.
